Tah has been involved with Yoga most of her life. She started practicing as a teenager. Inspired by a mentor to join a class at 16 sparked the yoga fire which has been burning ever since. After launching a sportswear line with her then husband in the late 80′s and becoming a mother of two daughters, it was time for a healing change. Trusting in the age old adage, “Do what you love”, was the consistent echo in her mind. A pivotal time of transition, a powerful awakening as she realized the path that called her.

Do what you love clearly meant that she become a teacher. 

In 1996 working simultaneously within the health food industry as a reliable source for nutritional council and support, Tah’s yoga business grew. She was able to open one of the first yoga studios in La Jolla. Shakti Yoga was born. After enjoying this prime location for a handful of years she realized the benefit of being a mobile instructor. This was the next logical step for her since the established client base was corporate and private. 

Tah lives in San Diego with her partner of 16 years; and besides her two daughters who are in their 20s, has a rambunctious 6 year old son, who instead of a dog to follow him around has a loyal Bengal cat named Jagger.  

As a yoga teacher she has developed a nurturing hands-on approach, a comfortable style, rich with verbal cues regarding alignment of body, mind and spirit.

Her Vinyasa flow class is a perfect place for the beginner or advanced student. With Tah’s emphasis on the details of asana, using body awareness, breath flow, and a soft nurturing and compassionate tone, yoga becomes an essential element to lighten and gladden your spirit. Her attention is on the breath as the core of a transformative yoga practice. She states: “The inhale breath, vital to allowing the life force (Prana) in, and the exhale breath (Apana), both open pathways of allowing resistance to leave the body. The inhale and exhale of breath are instrumental in maintaining a balanced yoga practice. A natural softening occurs with deep breathe to establish a solid foundation rooted in the body. A key component that facilitates healing on all levels. As in letting go of old, outdated patterns that no longer serve the higher self. Through intimate exploration of each pose as it transitions into the next, we find that each inhale and exhale reveals our true self hidden behind stagnant layers of resistance.”
